, that's the last thing the eu or the eurozone needs right now. just when we get the signal of the panic button in the eurozone debt crisis, we have another cloud on the horizon. but that's nothing angela merkel can influence. i'm sure it's going to be a topic of discussion saying, look, is this going to be a government crisis? can you avert this? that is nothing we will hear about. the official communique will sound similar to what we heard out of paris, out of the monte meeting. don't expect a result on this budget summit yet on the table and on we go to the next rendezvous in terms of the budgets. we've got another eu summit in march, which is not -- which is not ear marked, of course, as a budget meeting, but i daresay we will trickle along nicely or unnicely until finally they reach an agreement on the next budget. in terms of the eurozone debt crisis, of course, that's the other point of discussion. at the moment, there's a little bit of cautious shoulder padd g padding, but it will be a bit more cautious because of the aforementioned festering crisis in spain. obviously, what we'
